4 Boxes, 8 Soap Packages, 8 Soap Packaging Sleeves
UhWaken soap was created with hard workers in mind.
Each box comes with three bars of soap. The “9 to 5” is for when you need a moderate boost; “All-Nighter” helps you clean up after a late night; and “Workaholic” is for those worn-out, beat-‘em-up, grimy days.
The packaging design was inspired by the city and that feeling you have after being at work and in traffic all day. Each box represents a different mode of transportation: taxi, bus, or subway car. Inside the package, each bar of soap is individually wrapped in monster sleeves. When the sleeve is taken off, you’ll find uplifting words written on pure white paper and etched into the soap. Removing the sleeve from the soap symbolizes the cleansing away of any harmful feelings lingering from work and bumper-to-bumper traffic.
Enter the shower feeling like a gross monster; exit refreshed, clean, and invigorated.
This package is unique because of the way it is shaped like a taxi, bus, and subway car. Also because of the intricate illustrations on each of the packages.
